Katie and the carnival

2 of my favourite shots from the Katie and the carnival shoot I did last weekend. Absolutely beautiful day – until we started shooting then it chucked down but midges and downpurs aside myself and lily built the sets and ordered the guys to hide in the van so their hair and makeup didn’t get ruined! and optimism prevailed as always with the sun finally coming out and we were able to creat “the places we go” which will be used to promote the bands upciming abum which is going to be phenomenal i can tell ya now! if you have’t seen these guys live yet you have too – they have everything, music, glitter, ventriloquist dummies i mean where else would you get all that!! We took loads of shots so they make up a beautiful series which I’ll display in full at some point but the band have to get first chance to do that!

this really needs to be seen big to see it properly so click the image to view it full screen!

Red Light Inferno

What better to do with a band visiting all the way from Donegal than to drag them to all Belfast’s seediest streets and make them pose outside tattoo parlours and sexshops – hey why not right! Any bands looking a music photographer in Ireland get in touch 🙂 I love an excuse to travel!!

AU ASIWYFA

My second AU cover to feature ASIWYFa – dragged the poor fellas up Divis mountain this time – despite it being sunny everywhere else it was still baltic and their truck ran outta petrol (thankfully at thetop so we coul roll back down the hill as far as the springfield road then go get petrol – never a dull moment huh!)
